some real nice stands here, this has already given me a few good ideas, thank you all, but keep them coming
Ill make sure to post mine when its done. Got the lumber yesterday.
How imoratand is it the the lumber is straight? I think I got very straight 2x6's for the upper frame, but the the 2x4's are not as straight.
My sisters husband is a carpenter and he told me that it was a waste of time to look fer perfectly straight lumber at the store since it would always bend a bit when you bring it home where it is hotter then at the store since im not buying dried wood.
Hvae you been storing your lumber at room temperature for some time before building the stands?
